Before the Dawn MUX

  • Not my game, but I saw it elsewhere and thought you guys might be interested.


    "I've lived in the world of the supernatural a long time, but I'm still a doctor. I'm still a man of science. Something like this happens, it rattles the foundation of everything you believe."

    "Into every generation a slayer is born: one girl in all the world, a chosen one... She is the Slayer."

    "To my three beautiful girls. May this give you the light to find the shadows. The power of three will set you free."

    "What if I'm not a superhero. What if I'm the bad guy?"

    "What goes around comes around. And sometimes you get what comes around. And, sometimes you are what's coming around."

    "Saving people, hunting things--the family business."

    "This new-found heroism is making me very attracted to you."

    Before the Dawn is a Multi-User eXperience, a text-based role-playing game run via telnet. The game's theme is non-WoD urban fantasy set in the American Northwest, taking inspiration and incorporating sources ranging from Buffy the Vampire Slayer to Charmed, The Dresden Files, Supernatural, Teen Wolf, and beyond. Each new source is adapted into the game timeline, bringing in options for FCs and OCs alike. We have an enthusiastic couple of GMs on hand with stories to tell, and we're very interested in building a strong community based on cooperation and collaboration. We hope to encourage all of our players to feel involved and active in telling their stories--our stories. Come join us and explore this world of all the things that dwell in the shadows of a world at its darkest: Before the Dawn.         

    We're always considering new source material! Our currently accepted sources include: Buffy: The Vampire Slayer and Angel, Charmed, The Dresden Files, Supernatural, Teen Wolf, The Twilight Saga, The Vampire Diaries, and Being Human. Join in one of our fandoms, or bring your own!

  • So this is like....Multiverse Crisis but with tv shows instead of anime and video games?

  • @Tempest
    Looks like it, to an extent, probably with better reasons for mixing the genres. But people are always looking for new non-WoD urban horror stuff to play, so I threw it up here. I am not on there, so I can't give it an up or down, but figured it couldn't hurt to post it.

  • Out of curiosity, if you've poked at it, do they have mechanics? Or is it more like a superhero/etc game and pretty much consent based?

  • @Bobotron said:

    Just a cursory evaluation on their wiki seems to be traits-based with competency levels to help factor into the play.

  • Twilight vampires? Pass.

  • Very curious how the vampire stuff works, since the various themes mentioned use mythology rules for them that are quite different, to varying degrees. I'm intrigued by the "vaguely different than other games" of it, at least.

  • I was kind of intrigued, until..yeah. Even ignoring Twilight, for some reason...FCs in this setting really turn me off. Whereas I love them in comic & anime games. I have surprisingly little interest to play with Sam & Dean despite loving the show, or Piper/Paige/Phoebe even though I've watched all of Charmed 3+ times probably.

    Insert Wincest joke of your choice here.

  • Looking over the wiki, I was kind of getting Heroes Dreams vibes. Admittedly, it was very cursory and I could easily be wrong.

  • Twilight? Really? Fuck. No.

    I'd rather rip my own eyeballs out with a shard of glass.

  • Pitcrew

    Honestly, it depends how it is handled.

    This seems like a ripe setting to explore Blade vs Edward.
